Tesla was sliding Friday, down 3% to below $328 a share, after the company announced that it was cutting prices on some vehicles in China to help offset some of the impact from President Donald Trump's trade war.

The electric-car maker on Thursday said it was slashing prices on its Model X and Model S vehicles in China by 12% to 26% to make them more "affordable," Reuters reported.

It has been a roller coaster ride for Tesla shareholders in the second half of 2018. The stock topped out above $387 on August 7, the day CEO Elon Musk said he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private at $420 a share. Musk didn't have funding secured, and he later settled with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which had accused him of misleading the public. As part of the settlement, he agreed to step down as chairman for at least three years and pay a fine of $20 million.

Tesla's stock tumbled to $250 in the wake of the "funding secured" saga, but was able to hold key support in the area. Shares managed to climb back above $350 after the company crushed third-quarter expectations and named Robyn Denholm, the CFO at Australian telecom Telstra, as its new board chair.

Tesla was up 8.6% this year through Tuesday.
